Some cool news we dug up at SEMA, Ford has a fresh factory turbocharged variant of the new Focus coming to America. The Focus ST, Ford's first global high-performance model, features a 2.0-liter EcoBoost four cylinder engine, lowered chassis, high-performance brakes and unique suspension tuning. The standard transmission for the Focus ST is a six-speed manual, optimized with sporting ratios matched to the performance characteristics of the engine. The seductive hatch, scheduled for 2012 launch, will give the Blue Oval contingent a strong one-two punch as expectations are also running high with the Fiesta. Time and tuners will tell how big these Fords will catch on.
